Description rossamar 2008-05-08 18:11:43 UTC
One thing I miss from Excel 2003 is the evaluation of a formula, it is displayed
in a dialog box and the values are sustitued in the formula and it is evaluated,
very nice for tracking math errors in the formula, you can see the intermediate
results and how the calculation is made; order and so on, thus I can see if
there is a missing parenthesis or other misstake.


I installed Open Office in my job, thus rarely use Microsoft Office, only for
evaluating formulas.

Thanks and best regards.

Are you speaking about the assistant which is nested left to the formula input
above sheet? This exists in Calc as well.
Else please describe more precise maybe with a screenshot.

reassigning features and enhancements to user requirements@openoffice.org which
will be the default owner for those tasks (was introduced some time ago)
